“Is it natural to categorise people into groups? How do we determine category borders: the in-group ‘we’ and out-group ‘them’? how and why is in0-group love so close to out-group hate, and why do people who have to live side by side manage to hate one another so deeply.

This thought-provoking book investigates inter-group relations in a post-apartheid South Africa. It examines how out-group hatred and in-group affection can be, and often are, drawn out along lines of gender, religion, class and race, but are also at play in relationships between different cultural groups, the landed and the landless, language communities, the employed and unemployed, and the stigmatisation of people living with HIV/Aids.

·         Introduction

·         Theoretical and metatheoretical frames in inter-group psychology: Three competing perspectives

·         The social dominance theory perspective on discrimination and prejudice

·         Feminist theory and conflict

·         Social constructionist accounts of inter-group relations and identity

·         Social influence

·         HIV/Aids: Politics and inter-group relations

·         The land question

·         Homelessness

·         ‘Fortress society’: The gated community and politics of space, exclusion, privilege

·         Towards a social psychology of language

·         Racially stereotyping fetishism, fantasy, racism

 

Both the general leader and those studying social sciences will find this ground-breaking book accessible and fascinating.
